    i was wondering which you prefer to practise piping (writing) with: a bag with a very small tip or just a paper bag in whcih you need to snip off the end for the tip.

    thanks

    For practicing, you should try both, and then decide which is easier for you to handle. I like paper for its conevnience, but for more intricate work, I use a bag with a small round tip.

    When using chocolate, I normally snip a small opening and write using the bag touching the plaque that I am writing on use it as if I am writing with a pen. If I am writing directly on the cake, I would either use the smallest round pastry tip or a snipped cone. Unfortunately I cannot attach a picture to show you a sample of a writing using a cut tip and writing directly on a chocolate or sugar plaque.
